Stranger Than Paradise (1984)

Whenever writers try to pinpoint the beginning of the American independent cinema movement, this film usually comes up. Though it's not actually the beginning of anything, it's a unique, indelible and hilarious film, and certainly one of the best of its era. (It's sometimes mistaken as the debut film by writer/director Jim Jarmusch, but he made Permanent Vacation several years earlier.) read more...

Bottle Rocket (1996)

When Wes Anderson's feature debut Bottle Rocket was released just two years after Pulp Fiction, the market had been saturated with cool, quirky, independent crime films, most of them trying to be the next Quentin Tarantino. Bottle Rocket did not appear any different, especially given that, like Pulp Fiction, it had a 1970s-era star (James Caan) cast in a supporting role to give it some toughness and crime credibility. read more...

Dazed and Confused (1993)

Richard Linklater's Dazed and Confused not only portrays flawlessly a 24-hour period on the last day of school in 1976, but it captures the crushing boredom of a small town. The biggest event on this day is not so much the beginning of summer vacation or the promise of new and exiting things on the horizon, but hazing incoming freshmen, beating them up and humiliating them. This is the small town mentality, taking out the frustration of your own dim future on those younger than you who might still have a chance. read more...
